We have a 23 month old who is very stubborn and happens to be a picky eater. Last night I served a casserole similar to ones she's had in the past and liked. She refused to eat it, but I gave in and gave her a hotdog which she gobbled up. Tonight I served the same thing for supper and again she refused to eat. I was feeling a little stubborn myselft so I told her she had to try one bite before she could be done. She cried for 20 minutes and I continued to offer her the bite. Meanwhile my DH is telling me I have too many rules and thinks she's too young to understand this. By this time I was doubting my discipline, but felt like I had to stick with it. She eventually threw the bite on the floor and I told her she's done but she doesn't get any snacks tonight and I let her out of her chair.
So is she too young for this discipline and what techniques do you suggest for picky eaters of this age? TIA!
